    The first label was inspired by a black and white ink sketch made on paper in 1928. It was a graphic study made for Campari, closely recalling aperitif time, revisited and re-colored, presented on a green background with the color red in strong evidence.

    The second label on a yellow background depicts a collage dating back to 1927. The image takes up a sketch, the original of which is kept in the archive of the Galleria Campari collection, created by the artist with colored pencils. It represents the pleasure and passion of enjoying a Campari: the most evident detail of the portrayed character is his heart, which is colored as the liquid in the glass.

    Romero Britto creates contemporary masterpieces that evoke a spirit of hope and convey a sense of warmth.
    “As soon Campari commissioned me to create a special label, I thought about the way the brand has reinvented itself over the years, and the intense emotion that it always transmits. This is why I have chosen to adapt the work of art ‘New Day’ featuring the sunrise, a newborn day, together with one of my signature elements, the heart, to illustrate this. I believe art is too important not to share, and with this label I wanted to show that Campari is also too important not to share” states Britto.
